Minute by Minute: The Role of Intelligence in the Cuban Missile Crisis
Can students change the course of history?
Enliven your teaching of the Cold War with a newly published case-based simulation in which students play the role of intelligence analysts at the CIA in 1962. By examining declassified intelligence documents and U-2 photographs at various stages of the Cuban Missile Crisis, students “live” the crisis rather than only read about it.
In this social studies standards-based lesson, students are challenged to make decisions and recommendations based on primary documents and photos. The outcome of the crisis is in their hands: will their analysis provide President Kennedy with the information he needs to avoid nuclear catastrophe?
